Amk hub where got huge?

In this context of serving a neighbourhood/community, AMK Hub is huge la. Of course NEX and Northpoint are bigger, but everything with a “Hub” will also seems larger than actual.

It's packed with a lot more shops and with the interchange just below, it's a really busy mall all the time.

Nothing pleasant like Thomson Plaza.

Thomson Plaza is just ok size. The Thomson area as a whole is very vibrant, lots of eating places and services catering to the mainly private residences. (Again private residents are the target... even Price wise in the plaza)


the magnitude of Bishan or AMK central in terms of shops and offerings is larger because Bishan and AMK have many hdb residents to service (demographic different)

How will this en bloc impact Thomson Three? Do you think the Thomson Three’s view will be blocked even more and cause their value to drop? Now it’s just the Thomson View’s tower block standing in the way.

Thomson view plot ratio 2.1 so the new development can build up to 24 storeys high.
Thomson three plot ratio 2.8

Just had my walk at Windsor Park this morning. A new development at Thomson View site will block out most view of Thomson Three, especially if the new blocks are all south & east facing.

New development will likely have 8-9 towers spread across 700m frontage, so there will be some gaps for T3 owners. Both estates will have same height (22-24 floors) due to height restrictions imposed on T3 land.

Thomson Plaza feels a lot more comfortable than AMK hub or J8.

just shopping in NTUC already feels better at Thomson Plaza

Thomson Three still better than Three 11.
